Kuala Selangor is a small coastal village northwest of Kuala Lumpur. The village is renowned for the great attraction alongside the Selangor River that runs through the village.

It is said that this is one of the biggest firefly colonies in the world. If you want to check out the fireflies yourself, you should head out to Kampung Kuantan (9 km from Kuala Selangor) in the beginning of the evening. There you can arrange an Eco-friendly rowing boat; a local boatman (guide) will escort you.
